Community foundationaccepting applications

The Daviess County Community Foundation is now accepting applications for charitable projects or activities that address issues facing women and/or girls and youth in Daviess County.

The Daviess County Community Foundation’s Women’s Giving Circle and Youth Council Funds along with the Smithville Charitable Youth of Daviess County Fund will together award grants of up to $4,000 for a project serving women and/or girls and up to $1,000 for six projects serving youth in Daviess County.

The foundation welcomes funding requests from non-profit organizations that are tax-exempt under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code and from governmental agencies serving Daviess County youth. Funding requests from other non-profit organizations to carry out charitable projects or activities that address issues facing women and/or girls and youth in Daviess County may also be accepted.

Agencies and projects not eligible for funding include religious organizations for religious purposes, political parties or campaigns, endowment creation or debt reduction, operating costs not directly related to the proposed project or program, capital campaigns, annual appeals or membership contributions, and travel requests for groups or individuals such as bands, sports teams, or school classes.

Grant applications will be accepted through March 10 on the Community Foundation’s website at www.daviesscommunityfoundation.org.
